  • We present new results from a continuing 5 GHz search for flaring radio emission from a sample of L and T brown dwarfs, conducted with the 305-m Arecibo radio telescope. In addition to the previously reported flaring from the T6.5-dwarf 2MASS J10475385+212423, we have detected and confirmed circularly polarized flares from another T6-dwarf, WISEPC J112254.73+255021.5. Although the flares are sporadic, they appear to occur at a stable period of 0.288 hours. Given the current constraints, periods… CONTINUE READING
